We got an e-mail this morning from one Aaron Charney, who informed us that

Today I filed suit against my employer, the "white shoe" law firm Sullivan & Cromwell LLP (legal counsel to Goldman Sachs and Microsoft), alleging discrimination and retaliation by S&C based on my sexual orientation. The systematic campaign of discrimination and retaliation conducted by S&C partners and employees is proved by tapes and additional evidence.

Charney helpfully included the complaint in handy PDF file. We read through it, and it complains some pretty harrowing stuff (along with the completely accurate statement that Canadians are irrelevant). We make no claims as to the merits of the case, but, if true, this is definitely a trial we're going to want to follow. Too bad it'll probably get settled.
